"I'm a pretty self-sufficient, self-guided person though my answers have often been hidden within excuses and old beliefs, which were frustrating and paralyzing. Reggie helped me see through all the rhetoric and pointed me towards my heart's desire, using a combination of what's written on my own hands and her extraordinary gift of divining the truth. I never would have had the courage to dub myself an "artisan" without Reggie's unique support. Thank you from the bottom of my artsy heart, Reggie."

Resist Not Success.
Create Space for Desire
By Reggie Odom
Are you living from your heart's desires? If you are, you will know because
of the ease, flow and success you are experiencing. Not to mention the
Or are you resisting your desires? If you are resisting them, you will
know that too because of the effort, stress and lack of results or fulfillment
you are experiencing.
This article provides another look at resistance, awareness and desire.
In a previous article titled "Are You Resisting Success" I began
the conversation about just that. If you didn't get a chance to read it
you can read it here in Ezine
In that article I identified awareness as the key to moving beyond resistance.
It is also the key to living from your true desires which equals success.
The simple truth of this lies in a Zen-like principle - resistance can
be transformed simply by being aware that it is there.
Resistance blocks the awareness of our desires, of the impulse of life
flowing through us. Based in fear and false beliefs, resistance shows
up as physical and emotional discomfort that can range from mild to overwhelming.
It leads to reactive behaviors that can be either passive or active.
For instance, resistance can lead to withdrawal or busyness, or withdrawal
and busyness. Whatever they are, these behaviors have become habit patterns.
They are automatic. We kick into them as soon as we are triggered by some
thought, emotion or actual event in our outer world.
Between the subconscious fears and false beliefs and their resulting reactive
behaviors we can be so distracted from our true desires that we don't
even realize they exist. Our experience is that we are the "effect"
rather than the "cause" in our lives. We find ourselves engaged
in repeating behavior patterns that keep us stuck and sabotage our success.
Most importantly, resistance prevents us from connecting with our desires,
the impulse of life seeking expression through us.
BUT WITH AWARENESS...
However, in the moment we become aware that we are resisting something,
we have created space where there was none before. The space is between
the trigger and the reactive behavior.
When this space is present the behavior is no longer automatic, no longer
a "done deal." We can simply choose - where before there was
no choice - not to react to the trigger. By doing this we are more at
peace and more ready for successful actions.
In these moments of awareness and with the space they create, the fear
and false belief that created the resistance are being transformed. And
the habit pattern of the reactive behavior begins to disassemble.
THE VOICE OF DESIRE
In the space we have created with awareness we can hear the voice of our
true desires if we remember to listen for them. It is from our true desires
that the energy for successful manifestation of every desire resides and
where each next step is revealed. Living from our true desires assures
brilliant success with ease and grace.

Live from your true desires!
